Stone Pages Archaeo News: New analysis of pottery stirs Olmec trade controversy

www.stonepages.com [cached]

In the new studies, geologist James B. Stoltman of the University of Wisconsin used a technique called petrography to study a similar set of shards.Stoltman studied thin slices of the shards to determine what minerals were used in production.The minerals, usually from crushed local rock, were added to the pottery clay to provide plasticity and to help pots survive shrinking and drying.Stoltman concluded that the shards were produced at a variety of sites.Some, for example, contained the sedimentary rock, such as limestone and sandstone, that underlies San Lorenzo.Others contained volcanic rock, such as that found at Oaxaca.Stoltman identified seven types of materials in the shards, suggesting a similar number of production sites.Five of the samples dug up in the Olmec capital "were unambiguously from Oaxaca, demonstrating that some of the pottery in San Lorenzo was made elsewhere," Stoltman said.That "contradicts recent claims that the Gulf Coast was the sole source of pottery" for the region."It's difficult to give primacy to one culture," Stoltman says.

In the second paper, "Ceramic Petrography, An Old Fashioned Technique Provides New Insights into Bronze Age Chinese Society," Professor Emeritus James Stoltman of the University of Wisconsin (Madison), offering a broad context, discussed the recent application of Petrographical analysis to bronze-casting molds from Anyang and ceramics from Guicheng in Shandong, which uncovered important compositional difference in regional ceramics.
